Heel Pain Express - Fix Your Heel Pain and Plantar Fasciitis
Options to help plantar fasciitis
Bracing. Bracing helps keep the foot in a corrected position while the acute pain is present. The Ortho Heal helps offload the plantar fascia, massage the heel pain all day and restrict excessive pronation and supination to alleviate the heel pain.
Orthotics. Once the acute pain of heel pain starts to decrease, orthotics are helpful to continue the course of offloading the plantar fascia for good long term results.
Topical Pain Relievers. Topical pain creams can help alleviated inflammation and pain thereby, helping the person to stretch better and reduce symptoms to allow the body to heal itself. Ortho X Pain Cream has been clinically proven to reduce foot pain.
Night splints. Night Splints aid in the static pull of the fascia while a person is at rest to alleviate morning symptoms.
Stretching exercises. Exercises that stretch out the calf muscles help ease the pain and assist with recovery.
Ice. Putting an ice pack on your heel 30 minutes several times a day helps reduce inflammation.
Compression. Compression to the heel with a heel pain sock alleviates some of the symptoms of inflammation which will aid in heel pain recovery.
Avoid going barefoot. When you walk without shoes, you put undue strain and stress on your plantar fascia.
Limit Activities. Cut down on extended physical activities to give your heel a rest
